It focuses on issues concerning moral and religious education using philosophical tools to help clarify and assess key arguments. Phillip Pullman said it “should be read by every parent every teacher and every politician”.; The book was based on a prize-winning essay (joint winner of the £5000 ESRC-Prospect Millennium essay prize in 2000). The publication had considerable impact and was reviewed by e.g. The Economist and featured on Radio 4 Today programme and Radio 3 Nightwaves (where I was in discussion about the book with Prof. Anthony O’Hear).
